Obligatory Filibuster Agreement Post

There are a few Republicans that think the agreement struck by McCain and Byrd et al. is a good thing because someday the Republicans may be in the minority again and it would be nice to have this power to block a liberal activist judge.

That seems an odd position, considering the Republicans never used this power when they were in the minority before.

Oh, and just so you know, if one day the Republicans do filibuster a Democrat nominee, the Democrats will change the rules faster than you can change the plastic sheets on your nigh nigh bed.
